Review: The Gift of Oneida Flatware

As I recently mentioned, my husband's and my 10th wedding anniversary is coming up next month. Yes, it is an exciting milestone, but it also means that everything we received on our wedding registry is at least ten years old. Even though steel is the traditional gift for the 11th year anniversary, I still think stainless steel flatware makes a great gift no matter the occasion . . . anniversaries, weddings, housewarming, Christmas, and more. Even if someone does not need to replace their current set of flatware, he or she can always use extra forks, knives, spoons, and serving utensils for hosting events, parties, and dinners.

When we made our wedding registry over ten years ago, my husband insisted on the plainest flatware possible. This time around, we selected the Flight pattern from the Oneida Modern Flatware collection. It is simple and contemporary with just a touch of style so it is not completely plain. We went with the bright finish, but this flatware is also available with a satin finish.

The five piece serving set shares the same timeless look. I love that the pierced spoon has very small openings, as our current one allows more than just liquid to slip through the holes.

To find stylish and useful gifts this holiday, visit for flatware, dinnerware, drinkware, cookware, and more. I have one eye on the new Oneida Chef's Table dinnerware, but I am not quite sure I am ready to replace our stoneware yet. For a limited time, you can receive Free Ground Shipping within the U.S. when you spend $99 or more.

Thank you to Oneida for sending us sample flatware free of charge to base this review upon.
